Short Video of my Car

Not really a true Pro Street but,since this section doesn't get much action I thought I would post it here. Nothing special just a walk around video while I was warming up my car. I was picking it up from getting a headliner made and installed.

Re: Short Video of my Car

Daaaamn Royce, that thing turned out badass! That car is killer looking, from a distance it looks like a larger car, but when you are up close and the way that huffer hangs out of the hood, you can tell it really is not a big car, any idea what it weighs?

That blue and the factory chrome, with the wheels etc. etc., you nailed it!

Re: Short Video of my Car

Thanks guys.

Sean,
I don't know the weight yet. Stock the car weaighed about 2400lbs.I took a lot of weight out but, I also added quite a bit. If it comes in under 3000lbs I will be happy. When people see pictures of the car they think it's a big car but, the car is very small. The wheelbase is about the same as a 1st gen Camaro, but the body is shorter.

Skip,
With 498ci, I'm sure that BBC rumbles quite a bit. Hopefully we will rub elbows soon at a show.

Re: Short Video of my Car

Thanks! It's not perfect by a long shot but, I am happy with the results so far. I have two ripples in the body that I didn't quite get out. For the amount of body work I did on the car I guess I shouldn't be to upset. Most people will never see them but, I know they are there.

Al,
I have a special secret glass cleaner, wanna buy some?

It looks incredible, guarantee there won't be another like it pretty much anywhere you go either, very well done Royce.

Thanks Sean!

I would be shocked if I saw another one like it. You have to be a little off your rocker to build one of these. There aren't many parts out there and there is no repop stuff. Not to mention all the pot metal trim, that is very hard to restore. I honestly would not want to start over on this project, it was WAY more work than I planned. Hopefully I can button it up in the near future.

Re: Short Video of my Car

After watching this video, and hearing it, you should delete the sound clip from your signature. Or at least change it.

Good idea I didn't even think of that. The sound clip in my signature was taken with a cell phone about6 or 7 years ago. Thanks, I will take care of that.

Once the rest of the interior is done, there are trim pieces missing, etc.. I'll be sure to get an exciting video of the headliner just for you, lol.

Thanks
